Abstract : The presentation deals with the occurring loads or forces (surgical trauma) applied to the canine intervertebral space and its surrounding structures when a surgeon performs a laminectomy with exploration of an interspace. This may also occur when the human disc space is entered, either purposely for diagnosis, such as discography, or accidentally during the course of spinal anesthesia (rare).
